. [inaudible] >> elaborate on the impact of the united states entry into the war. >> to elaborate on the impact of the united states entry to the war. the united states was part of the war effort from the beginning because we were selling large amounts of armaments to britain and france, not to germany and much of those sales on credit. because they were on credit, one impact of the war was to make the united states enormously wealthy because everybody ended up owing us money at the end of the war. militarily the u.s. entered the war in april of 1917, about a year and six months before the end. there was an enormous psychological boost for the our eyes when they u.s. entered. there wasn't much direct military effect immediately except on the oceans because of the u.s. had a surprisingly small standing army at that time. we did have quite a large navy which joined the british in hunting down german submarines. large numbers of american troops didn't begin arriving in france until may or june of 1918 and then they did have a considerable impact because the germans had launched a sort of desperate
and questions about the united states as a mill staitary power moral, legal questions, strategy and is really palpable as part of the conversation i think. >> wow. you know, i don't need to define a legacy at all. we just did. since i forgot to. anyway. i'm going to go in the order that these were raised. and get us all to weigh in on this. andy. your point about how does one understand how americans find compromise, find a middle ground. you reminded me immediately, one of the things, that he wrote about 50 years ago now, in "legacy of the civil war" was that he believed the civil war gave us prague ma -- pragmatism. his point, the area of terrible, bloody extremes, horrifying extremes brought about an america, and many people have written about this, brought about in the next generation, at least, or that generation, a philosophical, outlook we have come to call pragmatism. a la william james and others. its that gone? can that kind of thing -- true three be defeated? i mean we think we are living -- our current word is polarization. a nice word isn't it, for political deadlock. political h

of the united states. south carolina secedes but you have a u.s. military installation there. what do you do with it? if you're the north you're like, no way, we're not letting go. you can't tell us to leave. south carolina is saying we're not part of the united states anymore. you might as well have a u.s. military installation in mexico. it's just not going to happen. you're not allowed to do that without our permission. so what's happening is the guys in the u.s. army who are stationed at ft. sumter are saying, we stay. in some cases you'll get forts like in texas where everybody kind of goes home. if you're from the north, you can go home to the north. if you're in the south, you can stay here. a whole bunch of weapons we'll confiscate. texas will use them, thank you very much. it comes to a head in certain spots though. florida it came to a head and it really comes to a head in charleston harbor at ft. sumter. that becomes the sticking point. that becomes that crisis point of who's going to go where. does that answer it? >> yes. >> any other questions? yeah. >> why did they fire on it i
basis for success was we in the united states had a better idea than, at that time, the soviet union. or if there are, say, radical terrorists involved, you could simply talk to someone in their family, maybe try to talk them out of it. so, in fact, of those 21 people that he obtained confessions from -- and they were doing a coup -- many of them, there was a few of them that went to jail for some periods of time. none of them were executed. most of them, if not all of them, returned to government service or involvement in the elite, the ruling elite of jordan. so that's one of the secrets to jordan's success or has been one of the secrets to jordan's success and their legitimacy is coercion on the lowest level possible to achieve what you need to achieve. and the lesson, again, is that he thought that we shouldn't be in the torture business. and he was very dismayed by some of the things like waterboarding, etc. both because he thought that the people who did it were not part, were not of the caliber that he thought existed in the cia when he was involved there and because it was co

guitar workers came to the united states looking for financial help. i offered to play a benefit show on their behalf. but the day before the benefit show, the earthquake in haiti happened. so these korean guitar workers, who had traveled 6,000 miles and were in desperate need for money for themselves, their families, and their strike fund, voted to donate 100% of the proceeds from their benefit show to the haiti relief effort. and i was very moved by that selfless act of international solidarity. that day, i wrote the song "world wide rebel songs," performed it that night, and became the staple, the cornerstone, of my most recent record of the same name. because their selfless act provides a window into the kind of world that i'd like to live in, the kind of world i'd like my children to inherit, the kind of world that i fight for in my music. >> here's the paradox you take me to, though. you sing, "hang on, man. it won't be long." there's something wonderfully promising about that, but also, terribly potentially disturbing. because you hang on and think, you know, you've been at thi
